Q: 99 Honda civic, replaced fuel regulator due to stalling when gas peddle presses. Runs now but feels held back. Would ECM reset fix

asked by on

99 Honda civic hatchback would idol but stall every time the gas was pressed. Replaced the fuel regulator and now it runs but it feels bogged down like it's getting to much fuel. Would resetting the ECM correct this issue?
My car has an automatic transmission.
